St. Mary's, Portchester in its churchyard
St. Mary's, Portchester in its churchyard
Taken from high up on the tower of Portchester Castle looking down on this fine Romanesque church (see several other photos in this square). The church dates from the mid C12th making it of Norman origin as can be detected by the Romanesque architecture. The walls seen behind the church, forming the eastern and southern boundaries of its churchyard are Roman. This Roman wall encloses the entire castle site and must be one of the finest Roman remains in England.
